Dear Speech Coach,

Please accept this invitation to attend the Fenton High School Frozen Forensics Varsity Tournament on Saturday, January 6th, 2018.  The tournament will be a standard three round plus finals tournament.  We do have a limited number of rooms, so registration will be closed once we reach the limit of students that we can comfortably accommodate.  I will post a tentative schedule in the speechwire files, but it may change, so check Speechwire as we get closer to the tournament. For us, this Saturday falls at the end of the second week of our winter break. Consider your school’s schedule as well when choosing to attend. This could be a great week to try out new material!    

ENTRY :  You may enter up to three competitors in each event, but may also request extra entries.  Requests for extra entries should be emailed to Nicole Hendricks (hendricks@fenton100.org).  Extra entries will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis and preference is always extended to those who have allowed extras for our team.  Extra entries will be admitted at additional fees, and teams permitted extra entries will be expected to provide additional judges. If you would like extra entries please request them ASAP.

JUDGES :  Each team should provide one judge for every six entries in the competition.  A full team is expected to have five judges, and teams with additional entries should bring an additional judge following the 1 judge per each 1 to 5 entries ratio.  This is absolutely necessary for the success of the tournament.

FEES :  The entry fee for 1-14 entries is $100. A team entry fee of 15-28 entries (2 per event) is $150.  A team entry fee for 29-42 competitors (3 per event) $200. Additional entries after 42 would result in a total fee of $225.

Rules and Preparation

Radio :  Prep will be at the tournament in the Academic Resource Center.  There will be two 45 minute preps for the preliminary rounds and one prep for finals.  Students may choose either prelim prep for the third round. 

Extemp :  Students will prep for 30 minutes (as per the new rules in IHSA) in the Academic Resource Center. There will be two preps for the preliminary rounds and one prep for finals.  Students may choose either prelim prep for the third round. Please provide 10 topics by January 3rd, 2018.

Impromptu :  We will be following the IHSA format.  Please provide 10 topics by January 3rd, 2018.

Time :  There will be no official penalty for time (except in radio).  Judges may consider it as part of the criteria for ranking.

Awards :  All individuals in the final rounds will receive awards.  Top 3 team scores, based on prelims, will win team trophies.

Please RSVP no later than December 22nd, 2017; however, remember that registration will close if we reach a maximum number of students so please RSVP ASAP, and please update your entries as it could open the competition for more teams. We look forward to seeing you and are planning an exciting day for both you and your competitors!
